Mushroom and artichoke omelette


Mushroom and artichoke omelette
This French "broken" omelette is not neatly folded like a classic omelette. There is more filling than egg: mushrooms and artichokes here, pan-fried with spring onions.

It can be served flat, like a Spanish omelette, but I prefer the more original broken look.
